  1. I do not know if this is the information you are looking for but from a few things I have heard when turning the computer OFF it actually goes into a suspend or sleep mode. To truely turn it off you have to switch the power off in the back. So it could be a sleep mode bug that windows has been prone to having for years now.
  2. I keep thinking about my eyes and how they give 3 dimentional information for my brain to process. Is there a video camera out there that mimics this with 2 lenses alternating into a video with each frame moving from one lens to the other?
  3. You are probably in legacy mode. Check this out.
  4. Most cards ship with overclocked values. This includes higher voltages that don't really do anything unless you are manually adjusting all the settings for the absolute maximum specs. If you're just gaming with it on auto then grab something like MSI afterburner and drop the power use to 90%.
  5. This seems like it is more than a problem with your computer since other tech has been damaged during this time. It sounds like you're getting dirty power so before you get more parts to be burned by the base problem you should have some testing done by your power company and get a solid, industrial grade, protection on your computer in the form of a surge protector or battery+surge protector combo.
  6. Make sure to make the OS installer from a pc you know is not infected with anything.
  7. He's a beginner. He may not have read that all motherboards start right off the bat at the Minimal speed and timing values. Basically running in safe mode. If the computer doesn't start up then there's a bigger problem than ram speed. XMP is the automated overclocking values for ram listed in the bios by the motherboard builder. Manual tuning is for getting that edge in computing but for casual computer users then XMP is fine enough.
  8. Sounds like load time. What's the drive you have your games stored on?
  9. I'd try installing windows again but without an internet connection. Setup windows so you control when it updates and then connect to the internet and see if that fixes it. If it does then Microsoft screwed things up for ya. How to.. Press the Windows logo key + R then type gpedit.msc and click OK. Go to "Computer Configuration" > "Administrative Templates" > "Windows Components" > "Windows Update". Double-click "Configure Automatic Updates". Select "Disabled" in Configured Automatic Updates on the left, and click Apply and "OK" to disable the Windows automatic
  10. You could use MSI afterburner and attempt to reduce the power setting and see if that stops the crashing. If it does then there's some issue with power.
